At a time when Pakistan is indulged in heavy firing along the Line of Control (LoC) in Kashmir's Poonch district, former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf has ironically blamed India for ceasefire violations and told the Indian Army to stop testing Pakistan's patience.

Once again on Sunday, Pakistan resorted to heavy firing along LoC in Mendhar and Sawjian Sector of Poonch district. The Indian side of the army has been continuously retorting to their attacks, which started on Friday night when Pakistani rangers broke ceasefire violation in Sawjian Sector, injuring four villagers and killing one, reported The Times of India.

Though the ceasefire agreements were violated by Pakistan, Musharraf blamed India for firing on the Pakistani side of the LoC and told Indian army to stop it.

"Regular ceasefire violations on the LoC by the Indians is not good for the region and deplorable. I think India should stop testing the patience and resolve of the Pakistani Army," PTI quoted Musharraf as saying.

Musharraf's statement came after India retorted to unprovoked firing by Pakistani rangers, along the LoC.

On Friday night, Pakistani rangers had also targeted Indian side of the International Border in Gulmarg sector of north Kashmir, in which two villagers were injured.

"Pakistani Rangers resorted to firing and shelling of mortar bombs targeting border hamlets and outposts (BoPs) along the international border in RS Pura belt of Jammu district since last night," the TOI quoted an offcer as saying.
